Not many people will admit this, but being out on maternity leave can get pretty lonely sometimes. You’re so used to being in the office, surrounded by people and all of a sudden you’re alone. Sure, you’re with a baby, but let’s face it – not much two-way conversation can be had there. So, here’s a tip – GET DRESSED in actual “you can be seen outside with that on” clothes. And no, yoga pants don’t count!
On the days that I put on regular clothes, I felt better. I strangely felt less isolated because I felt like I had a connection to the “outside world” and it helped me actually get out the door!
